News and latest profiles

This is DC Comics’ Courtney Whitmore, the future Stargirl, during her early career as the Star-Spangled Kid. It’s a “Year One” sort of writeup.

As of February of 2019, it has been polished a little bit more and received brazen, aggressive, irresponsible M&M stats.

A sample, but atypical, Special Forces trooper of the Galactic Republic during Star Wars’s Old Republic era and from the SWTOR video game. Comes with historical context primers, particularly about the military.

As of February of 2019, this profile was revised for style and concision, M&M-ified, and split in two to make certain it’s not too long to read in one sitting.

An obscure 1970s enemy of Ka-Zar… lord of the Hidden Jungle !

Also a robust martial artist with some A.I.M. access and Harlem mob contacts, which sounded useful.

One of the most famous characters in the Soul Calibur fighting video games. Magical whip-sword, martial arts, alchemy.

A made-up heroic fantasy character, inspired by minor Heretic/Hexen-like video game Ziggurat.

One of our occasional video gaming guides, since I have to take breathers at some points…

This one is about using free Windows speech recognition software to input commands whilst playing video games. This is primarily useful for persons with low or diminished manual dexterity.

As of January of 2019, wrote an addendum about using this in a shooter (namely Warframe).

An unreasonably thorough explanation about the Black Widow (Natalia Romanova) from the origins to the end of the Great Patriotic War. Buckle up, it’s something of a ride.

As of January of 2019, this profile has received yet more polishing, and was cleft due to length.

Part the second of our beautiful and deadly character profile for Natalia Romanova.

This one covers 1946-1965, but in practice it mostly corresponds to her earliest Marvel appearances as a femme fatale after Tony Stark’s industrial assets. Or at least, what he insists are industrial assets.

The Hell’s Belles are a convenient mercenary quartet with minor powers. They fought X-Factor that one time. Shrew left the team, though.

As of January of 2019, this profile has been overhauled and received furry M&M stats. Which concludes the upgrade for the Hell’s Belles.
